We are doing just that. A filter comes into effect before the control goes 
to the servlet. So if you can stop the user at the filter level you are 
actually saving some processing. We are checking for the presence of 
session in the filter.

Servlet filter

hey all,
Preventing users from accesing action. I am writing a web app to manage
administrators and profiles.
Administrators may access to the web app based on the profiles they have.
The profiles, determine which pages the administrator might access. The
profiles, and authorizations, might change online during work, so I need 
check authorization to access a page (Action) on each access.If I 
correct, then, the actionServlet, first process the form bean, and then 
But, if the user is not authorized to access a specific page (Action), I
need to forward him to an UnAuthorized error page, before thr formAction
bean is filled.
I would like to use a servlet filter. This filter checks the users rights
and instanciates a HttpServletRequest-Wrapper.But am not sure how - .Can
anyone help.Till then me trying to study the ServletFilter examples here n
